    About Beam Therapeutics

    Beam Therapeutics is pioneering the use of CRISPR base editing to develop precision genetic medicines that treat disease, one letter at a time.

    Base editing is a new category in CRISPR gene editing. Our groundbreaking technology allows us to make specific edits to base pairs in DNA or RNA. We use the power of a CRISPR enzyme to target a single location within the genome out of billions of bases (A, C, G, T). At that site, our technology is capable of precisely editing just a single base, without cutting the DNA or RNA strands.

    Base editors can deliver precise, programmable changes to a target gene sequence, enabling a wide variety of therapeutic strategies. To create base editor therapeutics, Beam is working with a variety of validated and emerging technologies for delivering base editors to different tissues and cell types.
